I don’t wanna work…I just wanna sleep in my bed all day…

Howdy there folks. P.rudz here for another edition of my blog. Yes, I did alter the lyrics to a song as I saw fit…GET OVER IT! Anyway, this blog is kinda going to be a rant session about my job at the hell hole. A.K.A. Weis Markets.

I'm not sure where to begin….let me just say that as much as I can say I like my job, I can find equal or more reasons on why I hate it. Erm, for the good parts I guess I'll list first. I've been with the company a little over three years now, I get in good with most of the people that work there and can usually get out of doing a lot of work while I'm there…mostly I'll wander around the store or help out in the office area. I also like most of the people there…I'm not gonna name names, but you know who you are. I can also usually get the hours I request since I'm in with the person who does the scheduling…not too bad if I do say so myself.

I have already listed/found 72 reasons on why I hate Weis Markets in a previous blog, but I shall delve a bit deeper in this article. See our uniforms consist of now, a grey polo tee shirt and either black or khaki pants. Starting as of next month though, only a few stores around my living area are getting a new dress code, which means for me a white button down shirt, a tie, and black pants. This is the most stupid idea I've ever heard. One, I hate black pants. A weird pet peeve of mind is black pants…I'll only wear them if I have to for a wedding, dance, etc. The rest of the outfit will make everyone look like a freaking manager…getting even more stupid questions from customers. Whats worse with this change in dress code is that the company isn't even going to pay/give us the new clothes, we need to go and buy them ourselves. Cheap corporate Weis bastards. I hope everyone's new uniforms get dirty and disgusting looking because they're white…the easiest color to STAIN.

Our company also can't keep a slogan for the life of it. Through my time there we've gone through three slogan changes that I can think of. 1) The Power to Save You More, 2) We Do What Works For You, 3) Where Freshness Matters.   …Alright…the first two I can deal with. This new one however…just plain stupid. It's bad enough they want us to answer the phone like this "Weis Markets, where freshness matters, how may I direct your call?" but, we'll be the butts of a few jokes with that slogan. "So you guys are fresh eh?" "…Yeah, backoff pervert." Anyway…my point on that is, stupid slogan, pick one thats good, and keep it.

Another complaint is bitter old people. They march in the store on any given day (espically Tuesday for Senior Citizen Discount Day) and are in argue mode. It seems they come in looking to fight and or argue over price differences, which usually only add up to about .30 to .60 cents. I can see if you're saving like two to three dollars on that discount…but what is getting that .50 cents back going to do? Get you a toy out of the little vending machine things? Just let that .50 cents go. And don't argue with me, most of the time you're wrong because you're either senile or bitchy.

Love it or hate it I guess a job is a job and I gotta stick with it because I need the money. All I know is that I'd rather be home sleeping instead of working. Which reminds me, I should be getting to bed cause I have to be at the hell hole at 7…only 6 hours away…

Sorry for the long post…rant session over…P.rudz…over and out~

  1. I read your post about your job at Weis and I got a kick out of it! šŸ™‚ I too work at Weis and can understand why you’d hate your job in some aspects. I don’t know what Weis you work at, but apparently mine’s different b/c we don’t have that new dress code. I agree the new slogan is a bit…stupid.People do get on your nerves, don’t they! Thanks for the laugh!

  2. I also completely agree with you.. Old people have got to be the rudest customers ever. I effing hate senior day with a passion.
